PTHREAD_ATTR_INIT(3)   FreeBSD Library Functions Manual	  PTHREAD_ATTR_INIT(3)

NAME
     pthread_attr_init,	pthread_attr_destroy --	initialise and destroy threads
     attribute object

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     int
     pthread_attr_init(pthread_attr_t *attr);

     int
     pthread_attr_destroy(pthread_attr_t *attr);

DESCRIPTION
     The function pthread_attr_init() initialises a thread attributes object
     attr with the default value for all of the	individual attributes used by
     a given implementation.

     The resulting attribute object (possibly modified by setting individual
     attribute values),	when used by pthread_create(3),	defines	the attributes
     of	the thread created.  A single attributes object	can be used in multi-
     ple simultaneous calls to pthread_create(3).

     The pthread_attr_destroy()	function is used to destroy a thread at-
     tributes object.  An implementation may cause pthread_attr_destroy() to
     set attr to an implementation-dependent invalid value.  The behaviour of
     using the attribute after it has been destroyed is	undefined.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, pthread_attr_init() and
     pthread_attr_destroy() return a value of 0.  Otherwise, an	error number
     is	returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The pthread_attr_init() function will fail	if:

     [ENOMEM]		Insufficient memory exists to initialise the thread
			attributes object.

     These functions will not return an	error code of [EINTR].

     pthread_attr_destroy() and	pthread_attr_init() conform to ISO/IEC 9945-1
